Budget Getaways Review

Finding decent accommodation Elands Bay is like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. For the moment don’t even bother looking at the paltry alternatives – head straight to Elands Bay Guesthouse.

Backdropped by mountain, and with neighbours to the left and right, it consists of a very nicely renovated double-storey house that can pack a group of 14. There is further accommodation to the back of the house in two very comfortable Annex Units that sleep four each.

And if that's not enough choice, your host Paul has just opened up a new spot next door called Point Cottage. Big plus here is that it's pet-friendly - they've even had a pot-bellied pig booking in! Like the other options, the house is fully equipped and can accommodate 8 guests (excluding pot-bellied pigs) in a double ensuite, two doubles and a twin room.

Our personal recommendation: muster a troop of fellow surfers, birdwatchers and career weekenders, and book the entire place out – you’ll have a great time of it.

Looking around the main abode, it’s clear a lot of attention has gone into ensuring you a comfortable stay. All the bedrooms face onto or lead directly to the garden through French doors. Many of these bedrooms are ensuite.

The kitchen and living area is light and airy, with a limewashed dining table, cane furniture, comfy white couches, slate and shiny laminate wood floors, a nice fireplace, and a five-burner gas hob and electric oven.

Heading upstairs, there’s a second living area with Plasma TV and other mod-cons to keep the aging surfer in you satisfied.

A small pool and neat garden with green grass to unfurl your towel on, an upstairs braai deck with a view, and a games room with pool table and table tennis for the use of all, provide further entertainment. 

For all the above, the beach lies about 200m away, via a boardwalk cutting through coastal fynbos.

As we said, this is the best self-catering pad in Elands.

"Great weekend away. Easy walk to the beach. Swimming pool, braai and pool table at the guesthouse. What more could you need?"

"We had a lovely weekend. Nice dog friendly place with all mod cons that you will need . There is a nice cosy restaurant, Vensterklip about 3 kilometers outside the town that is worth a visit. The house is located close to a lovely beach."

"We stayed at the point cottage for new Year. I think if you are a surfer or a fisherman then it will suit you. I believe that Elands bay has nothing really to offer if you do not do either. The cottage was clean and reasonably stocked, but I would definitely explain to people that you do not have use of the pool and that there is an iron ore train that goes past the cottage every 4-hours. There is no area to relax outdoors. On the good side, Janey and the staff cleaning were very helpful though. If I found myself back in Elands Bay I would rather book at the guesthouse as I believe it would be better value for money."

"We spent nine nights in this magical place, and will make it a yearly event, at least. Where is the white linen we had last time?"

"We've just returned from a three-night stay at the guesthouse - wow! We were away on a team build and the house was perfect for our needs. It's beautifully furnished, very well-equipped and light and spacious. We'll definitely be back!"
